to be a huge, huge part of this debate. the more conservative republicans like somebody like tom coburn, chuck grassley, jeff sessions, are really zeroing in on this issue for the debate. they're moving away from the claim -- i think we'll still hear some of it but they're moving away from the amnesty charges and welfare charges and zeroing in on the border security piece so if the gang of eight or the democratic leadership doesn't have a good response for them, that could derail the whole conversation because it's a hard talking point to argue against. how do you say, i know our border is not quite secure because people in southern arizona will tell you the border is not secure. apprehensions were up 9% this year and anticipated to be the same this year so people are continuing to cross. host: and the "arizona republic" reports on friday, "tight border discourages migrants from going home" so because ofet across, all these strict penalties, tougher penalties, all of that, crossing has become more dangerous, people are discouraged from going back home. guest: that is true. one of the pieces of

that republicans can vote for. senator chuck grassley of iowa is working on one which would marry some school safety with some restrictions more, you know, restrictions on gun trafficking but not deal with background checks. that is a watered down loser that the white house would be obviously forced to embrace. at this point, they knew they wouldn't get any magazine clip restrictions. they knew they wouldn't get an assault weapons ban. any enhanced background check is going to be considered a major victory for the white house. >> bret: is the thought of the filibuster that they don't politically want a free ride for these red state democrats to vote no on these things? >> well, i think, i mean, if you look at the gun control as just a political matter, i think that this is somewhat of a win-win for the white house. yes, it's true that this is an incredibly shrinking agenda. yes, it's true there is no assault weapons ban that's going to go forward or magazine control. but when you look at background checks, they actually have the support of 90% of the public. 88% of gun owners support backgrou
